Team news
Paulo Dybala scored in midweek and could earn a recall for the league game following a poor run of form.

Juventus will be without Gianluigi Buffon meaning Wojciech Szczesny will start against his old side.

There is unlikely to be any surprises in the Roma XI, meaning Patrick Schick will be among the subs.

The former Manchester City pair of Aleksander Kolarov and Edin Dzeko will both start.

Juventus (4-3-3): Szczesny; Barzagli, Chiellini, Benatia, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Pjanic, Matuidi; Cuadrado, Higuain, Dybala
